May 19 (UPI) -- Dwyane Wade made prom a night to remember for Archbishop Coleman Carroll High School senior Nicole Muxo when he surprised her at the event with flowers and a single dance, WSVN in Miami reported Saturday.

Muxo had invited the 31-year-old Miami Heat guard to the dance with a modest YouTube video, in which she said:

Hey Dwyane Wade, my name is Nicole and my senior prom is coming up.

I have everything set up for a perfect night except for one thing: a perfect date. So since you’re my favorite basketball player, I was wondering: Will you go to prom with me?

Wade told the Miami Herald that he thought he'd be too busy to attend the dance, but changed his mind at the last minute when he saw a break in his schedule.

"I said, 'I won’t be doing nothing tomorrow night and I can go and make this a memorable moment for her,'" he said.

“I’m going to remember it forever,” Muxo said of her surprise date. “This was the highlight of my senior year.”

Wade took to Twitter to spout a few words of encouragement for any teens looking for famous prom dates.

"Never be 2 scared to ask," Wade tweeted, along with the hashtag, "#dreamsdocometrue."
